The center of Berlin-Lankwitz is located around Trinity church and the Lankwitz S-Bahn station. The community park offers spacious lawns for relaxing as well as flower beds, playgrounds, an exercise trail, a pond, and an animal enclosure with fallow deer, goats, and sheep. The hill with the memorial to the fallen soldiers of the two world wars may be used as a toboggan run in the winter.

Weinviertel and Komponistenviertel

The Weinviertel (wine quarter) to the northeast of Lankwitz station is characterized by 1930s buildings surrounded by allotment gardens. To its northwest, around Kaulbachstraße and Mozartstraße, is the Komponistenviertel (composer's quarter). Its villas were built at the end of the 19th century, when the neighborhood was called Rosenthalsches Viertel. This area of Lankwitz is upmarket and exclusive, boasting spacious houses and mansions of different architectural styles flanked by sprawling parks and gardens.

Klamottenviertel and Old Lankwitz

Simpler buildings and tenement houses can be found in the south of Lankwitz, in the Klamottenviertel (clothing quarter). In the southwest lies the Thüringer Viertel (Thuringia quarter), where the Lankwitz cemetery is located. The neighborhood of northeastern Lankwitz, around Old Lankwitz, boasts a charming rural flair and lots of single-family homes. Here lies the center of the former village of Lankwitz with its village church. Those in search of a more urban atmosphere will find it around Kamenzer Damm in eastern Lankwitz, where modern high-rises with up to 20 stories dominate the cityscape.

A Stroll Through Lankwitz

With its many parks, private gardens and allotments, Lankwitz is a very green district and in some areas has the character of a garden city. The largest green area is undoubtedly Lankwitz community park. Bernkastler Platz, a fine example of Wilhelminian garden art, is also inviting for a leisurely stroll. Its main path is flanked by roses and leads to a fountain and pergola. Ideal for those in search of a longer walk is the north-south path. Starting at Lankwitz bridge in the north of the district, it crosses all of Lankwitz and ends at Cross cemetery, with its old trees and imposing entrance portal, in the south.
